What Really Get’s Your Goat on Twitter?
There are some people who add value to your day. They provoke thought, post interesting material, and are all round really lovely.
One such friend is Robin Dickinson. He’s very serious about the business of helping, and inspiring others.
He recently asked:
After thinking about his question, my conclusion was not much. How other’s run their stream, is their business.
My online policy is simple; tweet and let tweet.
Sure, others have their proclivities, as do I.
Indeed, there are times when I’m up for conversation, however despite my regular tweeting, I listen more than I talk.
It’s not what others do, but what they don’t do that get’s my goat.
What get’s my goat is a lack of critical thinking, shallow research and a lack of questions. In this information age, there’s no excuse for rent an opinion, or living our life on the quote of the day.
What do I say to you, if I get your goat? If I offend (I’m sure I will) or you need a favour, all I ask is you frame your question sweetly. Do unto me as you would like others to do unto you.
How is twitter any different to real life? In real life I greet my neighbour with a smile, stay under the radar when I’m having a bad hair day, and rather than call the police, wear ear plugs when they are entertaining.
To answer your question Robin, my policy is tweet and read the tweet.
